Join us on Wednesday 8 July for a webinar presentation titled: HSR's as Leaders. Presented by Vasalia Govender, HSR.

Health and Safety Representatives are elected by workers to represent their health and safety interests. So it is fair, to say the least, that HSRs care about health and safety in the workplace and are concerned about their workmates.  It is these qualities that make them natural leaders who have the skills and abilities to contribute and make a difference to influence and build a positive safety culture. Employers could capitalise on this by working with HSRs to reach the common goal to improve health and safety at the workplace.

The panel will share their experiences and learning along with practices to bridge the gap in understanding the role of the HSR role and primarily focus on how employers and HSRs can work together to improve health and safety outcomes.
